eTexts gain momentum

IU has entered into agreements with six publishers and Courseload -- including a new agreement with IU Press -- to provide eTexts and eReader software at a reduced cost to IU students and faculty.

Like the deals with Microsoft and Adobe that provide great software at a low cost, IU has entered into agreements with six publishers and Courseload -- including a new agreement with IU Press -- to provide eTexts and eReader software at a reduced cost to IU students and faculty. And in spring 2012, the first full semester of IU's eTexts Initiative, students and faculty in 129 sections will interact with eTexts through this model.

Selected sections span subject matter from technology, math, and the sciences to politics, media, and social theory. Ethics, anthropology, psychology, sports medicine, religion, and tourism also made the list.

Discussions with additional publishers are under way to provide faculty and students even greater opportunities to take advantage of eTexts in the future.

Faculty: If you're interested in using eTexts in the summer/fall 2012 semesters, sign up will be available in late January or early February.

Students: Talk to your professors about the possibilities of using eTexts through the IU eTexts Initiative.
